In this week’s episode of Be HEALTHistic, Dr. Drew Sinatra welcomes naturopathic doctor, author of Break the Mold, and educator on mold illness and treatment, Dr. Jill Crista. They discuss what mold and mycotoxins can do to your body, tips to identify if you’re suffering symptoms of mold illness, and how you can find treatment and support if you’ve been exposed. First, Dr. Jill explains how mold gives off mycotoxins — miniscule, invasive toxins that can seep into the body, creating a multitude of symptoms. She shares the most classic (and the often unusual) signs of mold exposure, and how we’re all different in our individual susceptibility to mold. Dr. Drew also reflects on his experiences with mold exposure, his symptoms, and his journey to healing. Next, the doctors talk about the most effective testing methods for diagnosing mold illness, and why leaving the moldy environment is the first step. Dr. Jill explains her five-step treatment protocol, how diet plays a role in recovery, and what foods to avoid if you’re suffering from mold illness and trying to heal. Finally, she gives her “pearl” of wisdom for those who think they’ve been impacted by mold and mycotoxins. Don’t miss this this truly informative episode of Be HEALTHistic!
